    I didn’t think he was a good game day coach, but I always thought he was a good evaluator of football talent. This seems like a good spot for him.

    the only thing he has proven is his love of eagle rejects. he can’t coach and he was the worst coach here since steckel! It was a great day when he was fired. it was the worst day when he was hired.
